By that logic, dogs shouldn't hunt, either. Like ferrets, many dog breeds were intended for hunting.

Ferrets were not originally kept to be "gentle and loving", they were kept for a specific task--hunting.

I don't understand why people have a problem with this just because the animals in question are ferrets and not dogs.
